Jeremy Lawrence, M.Sc.

After having conducted a research project and completed my Master’s thesis under Prof. Peters’ supervision, I am now continuing my academic journey by pursuing a Ph.D. in his group. So far my research has been conducted towards sound source localization of unknown sounds using only a single microphone. To achieve this seemingly impossible task we constructed a microphone which rotates at speeds of up to 42 rotations per second. My research now focuses on localization using microphone arrays.
